Volunteer Opportunities

Are you passionate about marine conservation and eager to make an impact? Join us as a volunteer!

We are always looking for people to help our mission to conserve and restore all coral species endemic to Cozumel. As a volunteer, you'll have the opportunity to participate in hands-on coral restoration activities, cleaning corals on our coral platforms, plating restored corals in the reef, assisting in research studies, and helping spread awareness of the importance of the marine ecosystem. Your efforts will contribute to preserving Cozumel's vibrant underwater world for future generations.

Dive in and make a difference today!

Requirements

 Because corals are so delicate, volunteers need to know how to control their buoyancy and safely interact with them. You don't want to accidentally kill a coral or get stung by one!

To ensure this, we require our volunteers to be at least 14 years old and have both their PADI/SSI Open Water Diver and Coral Reef Conservation diving certifications.

 

If you don't have them, don't worry. You can take these courses with us and then start volunteering once you’re fully trained:

Note we are a small local Cozumeleño coral research and restoration non-profit. If you are searching for a dive aboard or workaway opportunities, other organizations would be a better fit 

 
 
Volunteering with CCRRP
 

Certified volunteers are welcome to help as long as and as often as they are available. As a small non-profit, all we ask is that our volunteers pay for their tanks.

To volunteer, please fill out the form below:

"Working for German was a pleasure and eye opening for the climate crises facing our planet. German is a very inspiring person who fights with all his heart and every bit of his strength for the survival of the last corals. Volunteering for him has been one of the most impactful things in my entire life."

"As a marine biology student volunteering with this project was one of the best and most educational experiences in my life! Even if you're not into conservation, German is the best coral teacher you can find and will make you fall in love with this underwater world. If there's no coral reef there is no marine ecosystem. Every marine biologist needs to have an experience like this!"

— Maria Jose Tuz Kantun
